When he recently said that "there's no such thing as time off," Slash
seemed to be quite serious, as the iconic axeman recently announced the release of new solo record.
During a chat with the Salt Lake Tribune
, Slash confirmed that the "Apocalyptic Love
" follow-up is already in the works and should drop earlier next year.
"We're actually working up the next
[album] as we speak,"
the axeman stated. "Myles has a new album coming out and then a tour, so it'll be after that. But I'm working on material, I'll send it to him, and he'll come in and record. It'll be out early next year."
The guitarist also revealed that he won't be seeking any guest singers for the new album, keeping things plain and simple.
"No, the re's no one I'm seeking out,"
he said. "I don't do that. The first solo record was really the only time anything like that was pre-planned, where I'm calling people up and asking, 'Will you sing on my record?'"
Slash's current projects also include co-production of "Nothing to Fear" horror movie. According to the latest reports, the film's soundtrack is set to drop
on October 4.
"Apocalyptic Love" was released in May 2012 as Slash's sophomore solo effort, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart with 38,000 units shipped within the first week.
